Eternal Flame Memorial

Irkutsk is one of 21 Russian cities where the Eternal Flame wasn’t lost. The flame in the memorial complex was lit during the 30th anniversary of the World War II victory on the May 9, 1975. The relevant act was signed on April 29 1975 at the Moscow Soviet, and the representatives of Irkutsk received a capsule with soil from Moscow burned by the fights of 1941 and a lit torch. The inscription carved on the marble plates of the monument says: “Siberia, you forged victory together with all people”. Every year Irkutsk schoolchildren stand guard of honour next to the Eternal Flame.
